CEIP Doctor Juan Negrín
The coordinating school (CEIP Dr. Juan Negrín, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain) is a unit of a primary school (about 425 students). It is located in the suburbs of the city close to “La Laja” beach. The school itself is a public school employing high-quality staff. Except for the core curriculum subjects, there are plenty of additional classes and after-school activities that are supposed to help pupils develop their interests or give opportunity to improve the skills they are weak at. We are willing to take part in the Erasmus+ project to enable students develop their social and communication skills with their peers from other European countries. We wish to coordinate the project well and participate actively in all activities. As a result, we will all gain knowledge and experience in intercultural and international cooperation. The meetings, the exchange of ideas or points of view, tasks and conclusions will surely help students overcome the language barrier so common among pupils. The project itself should trigger motivation to learn foreign languages, overcome the fear of speaking English and open students' minds to other people and cultures. Hopefully, it may influence students' will to express themselves and to investigate the unknown. It undoubtedly will bring new challenge to our school as we have never coordinated such a project before.
